Halloween Silhouette Cut-Outs 

Third grade students celebrated Halloween in the art room by creating these fun silhouette cut-outs.  We discussed the art of Henri Matisse and used his cut-paper pieces as inspiration for our own cut-paper projects.  Each student designed a house on black paper and carefully cut out the windows and doors.  They added patterns and designs to the house with metallic crayons before choosing a background color and assembling their cut-paper silhouette.  Extra details were added inside the negative spaces of their cut-out with crayons and colored pencils.
